Thanks to the UCLA Brain Research Institute the Germania Culture Club
was able to offer PCC students the opportunity to bring their academic experience
across a broad spectrum of academic environments in one single ... Tag / day!
Stay tuned for next year's trip or sign-up for our next activities, so you don't miss out (Event's Calendar page)
Prof. Petra Lott's presentation
"Cognitive Advantages of Bilingualism"
UCLA Brain Research Institute visit
Languages participants want to learn: Portuguese, French, Latin, German, Japanese, Spanish.
How some participants got inspired ...
~ "We got a chance to meet with neuroscientists and they explained about how our brain works and it is just amazing. Thank you so much for this trip."
~ "I had a fun time and would like to do it again"
~ "Hearing about nutrition and how it affects the gut can be do to stress or indigestion. Everything was excellent! I really enjoyed this learning opportunity and the career panel and speaking with the scientists."
~ "Combining the Virtual Reality technology and neuroscience research. I'd like to learn more about this. Looking forward to more activities like this! Keep up the great work!"
~ "I learned a lot today about the frontal lobe and how the brain works. Also, learned certain things about the brain by actually examining it. We should fund trips like this!!!"
~ "I think talking to the panel and being able to ask them a variety of questions not just about the brain but about the career path. I hope to see more trips of this nature!"
~ I find it fascinating that researchers can come from a variety of backgrounds and majors. It gives me hope and motivation that I can handle this. Thank you very much."
~ "I really liked the Q&A with the panel because we got to ask a lot of personal insightful questions. Kudos to everyone involved. It really opened up my eyes to the possibilities of neuroscience."
~ "While it made sense to me, I never thought about the application of virtual reality to neuroscientific study. It was inspiring to see people from different fields collaborating that way. Thank you."
We were fascinated with the Mind-Gut research.
